A Visual Tour Around Arches National Park

I’ve never been to Mars but I’d imagine it looks a lot like the Arches National Park just outside Moab, Utah. It is known for preserving over 2000 natural sandstone arches, including the famous, Delicate Arch.

I invite you to take a visual stroll around Arches National Park with photos from my most recent visit…

The Arches National Park lies atop an underground evaporite layer or salt bed, which is the main cause of the formation of the arches, spires, balanced rocks, sandstone fins, and eroded monoliths in the area. Also, Arches National Park only receives an average of 10 inches of rainfall a year, which helps maintain these funky, mars-like shapes everywhere.
